    Pros

    Work-life balance is the only pro about the company.

    Cons

    The security division is in bad shape in terms of resources, moral, and leadership. You may have big ego maniacs elsewhere but it will be hard to top the ones that hold leadership positions in Honeywell security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop bullying your employees. It's a shame how leadership treats staff. Start treating people how they should be treated and stop allowing egos to get in the way of progress.

    I worked at Honeywell full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Strong technical talent but way under utilized. Too many dinosaurs with outdated ideas that impede growth and creative thinking.
    Very few people up to Sr Levels work more than 40 hours-a big plus for work life balance

    Cons

    The president of Analytics runs this unit like its his own private company and club-membership is very difficult to get into, but once you get a glimpse, you want run when you see the nonsense that goes on between HR/Finance/Marketing. Group prayers (this is a public company) is a very common practice and inappropriate. If you aren't an "FOC", you will never go anywhere. Bad behavior on behalf of middle management is ignored and tolerated. The weirdest, most ethically challenged and most stressful company to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the dinosaurs and open your eyes to what is going on. Many people have a lot to contribute, but those ideas are pushed away or completely ignored

    I worked at Honeywell full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good holiday, vacation days and personal day times. Great learning department allows you to take advantage of free continuing education opportunities.

    Cons

    You're just a number. Most people there are just trying to climb the corporate ladder and change positions often. Hiring freeze prevents new employee hiring even when it is desperately needed. They are great at buying a small company and literally tearing it apart, first with overwhelming red tape and procedures then literally shutting it down and keeping the technology.

    Pros

    None. Don't. Shouldn't. They look for scape goats to hide their inadequacy.

    Cons

    You are a scape goat to senior management. They make stupid decisions and then when you tell them how to fix it they take YOUR SOLUTIONS AND ACT LIKE THEY THOUGHT IT UP. So sick of senior leadership not seeing their peers as who they are. This includes top leaders in this company. Grow up guys. See that you are covering the wrong backs!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up and realize that your paychecks aren't the most important thing in life. Be humble knowing you screwed up with a decision and take YOUR accountability and not blame it on someone else. HR is a joke too. Take a close look CEO s and SR. VPs and look at each other. You don't know what's happening. Its almost funny.

    I have been working at Honeywell full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Compensation is decent, high amount of autonomy in my position, flexible work hours

    Cons

    Hostile work environment, in-fighting among leadership, executive management not focused on the real issues of the company, poor delivery, dissatisfied customers, excessive turn around times, culture is very antiquated and diversity is not encouraged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the real issues that affect the company's ability to be successful. Stop sweating the small stuff that doesn't make the company profitable. Work on building up the team instead of tearing them down. Stop tolerating poor behaviors which eventually impact results.

    I worked at Honeywell full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A lot of dedicated and hardworking people around who are over-qualified and work passionately. Good training facilities that offer excellent learning and certification opportunities to take advantage of.

    Cons

    Lots of them, the compensation is well below what most other companies in the area would offer. There are a lot of bad managers and only a hand full of good managers, so make sure if you do your homework. Lastly, its a deadend as there is no scope of growth, so unless you like living in LA this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dave Cote is a great CEO, great to be a shareholder. Not so great as an employee

    Pros

    Safe place to work and clean.

    Cons

    To get a raise you must leave your current position and move to another department.
    Right now, because we live in a right to work state, they are firing permanent workers but giving them lay-off packages to keep them from suing because they must sign a non-suing waiver to receive the package, so they can keep contract workers. They cannot lay off permanent workers and keep contract workers so their firing them. They are also randomly choosing engineers, giving them p.i.p.s (personal improvement plans) even though they have dont nothing wrong and if they dont "improve" they will get fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The lack of respect for the American worker runs deep here starting with the CEO. This down-turn will not last forever and you must improve or you will never get quality workers to work there.
